Ranger Experience

This is the ultimate gift for anyone who loves nature. When you go on our Ranger Experience you work alongside our staff and enjoy up-close encounters with captive species which make working at Ngā Manu so unique. Meet our native species which include kea, kākā, kererū, kiwi, tuatara and geckos. Every day presents a new wildlife challenge for the Ngā Manu crew and on the Ranger Experience you will be part of the action. A great school holiday treat.
